The Inn at Stonington
There’s something delicious about a cozy waterside inn on a stormy day. I curled up in front of the fireplace in my room with Ann Patchett’s riveting new novel, State of Wonder, for a few blissful hours before heading downstairs for complimentary wine and cheese. The rooms are classic yet modern, and well-designed with thoughtful amenities: Frette linens and robes and a jacuzzi in the limestone-clad bath. The common areas are elegant and breakfast (included) is bountiful. Have a workout in the on-site gym, borrow a bike for a spin, grab a patch of sand at charming duBois Beach or just enjoy the water view from the terrace. All good, but here’s what sets The Inn apart from the rest: the staff makes SURE you’re having a good time in Stonington; sharing secrets like the La Grua Center next door for morning yoga, The Sailing Foundation for sailing, surfing and kayaking lessons, or a reservation for dinner at the private Stonington Yacht Club.
